Got blocked out by the firewall and the web console doesn't help.
I’ve followed the instruction here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-debian-9 for setting up a webserver. However, after setting up the firewall through
nfw and logging out, I can’t access the droplet both by ssh and the web console anymore. Fwiw, opening the web console gives me this repeatedly:
[UFW BLOCK] IN=eth0 OUT= MAC= ... SRC= ...
so it looks like the logging attempt has been blocked by
I’m pretty sure that when I ran
ufw allow 'Nginx HTTP' and then
ufw status the output didn’t contain
OpenSSH. I should have noticed that :(
What should I do now?
